EFT/POS

Cashless payment collection at the point of sale

EFT/POS (electronic funds transfer at the point of sale) allows your customers to make convenient, quick cashless payments at your points of sale. This helps you reduce the cash you deal with and increases the safety of your business due to the lower amount of cash you have on the premises.

In partnership with Worldline, Mastercard and Wallee, we offer you the option of processing payments made with the most common payment methods, along with your own PAX A50 terminal, at an attractive package price of CHF 189 instead of CHF 279.

  • Do I need a PostFinance account to be able to accept the PostFinance Card?

    No, you are free to choose between crediting a PostFinance account or a third-party bank. If you use a PostFinance account, you will benefit from payment being credited quickly to your account, i.e. no later than a day after delivery of the transactions. If you use a third-party account, we cannot guarantee that payment will be made the following day.

    Why are the transaction fees lower with the PostFinance Card than for other cards?

    The fact that PostFinance is independent from card organizations allows it to set its own prices. What’s more, there are no interchange fees or levies involved, which would increase the prices.
